Partners Advancing West Islip Schools (PAWS) held its 12th annual fundraising gala Friday at Captain Bill’s Bayview House in Bay Shore.
PAWS is a nonprofit organization that’s separate from the West Islip School District. The group works to raise funds for educational programs or services not provided by the district.
